    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Unilever full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some great brands (Axe/Lynx, Magnum, Dove)
    Global coverage
    Diverse set of colleagues - some very bright
    Some big budgets
    Decent media spend
    Ridiculously good maternity leave deal

    Cons

    Adverse to taking risks
    Leadership by consensus rather than vision
    Slow to take decisions and often make U-turns
    Frequently lose out to P&G
    Often flips from being too self-reverential to hopeless self-contempt
    Lots of 'plodders' - people who do the minimum
    Employee pool becoming less bright - obedient process monkeys, rather than free thinking intellectuals
